About University College
Since its establishment in 1933 as “Lower Division,” University College has served
as the portal of entry for most incoming freshmen enrolling at LSU. It also serves
many returning students and transfer students who are not yet eligible for admission
to a degree-granting senior college on campus. The two enrollment divisions of University
College are The Center for Freshman Year and The Center for Advising and Counseling.
In addition, University College offers retention-specific programs: Student Support
Serves, Ronald E. McNair Research Scholars, and Summer Scholars. These academic support
programs focus on particular student populations and are a significant part of the
role and mission of University College.
